We tried: Ball Discovery Basket

ImageActivity:  Small round basket filled with a selection of ‘balls’

  • blue textured dryer ball
  • ball of string
  • pink tennis ball
  • plastic teething ball
  • string of felt balls

Success: 3/10

Expected: Kids love balls right?  They roll, they bounce, they unravel.  Enough to entertain for hours.  Oh the ignorance!

Unexpected: How annoyed MT would get when the balls rolled away from her.  I forgot to remember that she wasn’t on the move when we did this activity!!

Outcome: MT quickly got bored with the balls because she was unable to chase after them.  She settled for the felt balls on the string which she could wave about, suck on and jingle on the floor.  Not as successful as I hoped and probably one to try again now she is crawling.
